BRADFORD will be aiming to find a new number nine to lead the line next season after Tom Clare joined Northern Premier League side Buxton for the 2020/21 season.

The 20-year-old arrived at Horsfall after his contract had been terminated by mutual consent at National League North rivals Boston United last November.

When on-form, Clare was a lethal force going forward, netting big goals to secure wins against champions King's Lynn Town and playoff finishers Chester.

However, those days were far and in between, as he ended the curtailed campaign with five goals from 14 games.

Previously, the 6′5″ striker had spells at Barnsley and Bradford City, whom he joined during the 2018 summer but failed to make an appearance for the senior squad.

The youngster was loaned to Boston last March before signing permanently. Although his stay at the the Lincolnshire club only resulted in five goals from 15 matches.
